Donald Trump will meet the Queen when he visits Britain next month, the US ambassador to the UK has told Sky News. The president is due in Britain for a working visit on Friday 13 July – his first to the country since being elected in 2016.
It is not a state visit with all the pomp and ceremony that comes with that, so the pair would not necessarily need to meet. But ambassador Robert Wood Johnson said that while plans have not yet been finalised, they will involve the president meeting Her Majesty.
It is thought the president will meet the Queen at Windsor Castle, as it will be closed to the public on 13 July. Anti-Trump protests are expected over his administration’s controversial policies on immigration, including separating migrant children from parents who crossed the border illegally from Mexico.
